I specialize in sexual issues and persistent psychogenic pain. Both of these realms entail working through trauma, anxiety, grief, impulsivity, and depression. In sex therapy, I help clients grappling with issues around functioning, sexual shame, sexual trauma, impulsive behaviors, sex and porn "addictions," low and hyper-arousal issues - all from a sex-positive, kink/poly/bdsm-friendly stance. I also help couples navigate challenges in their intimate relationships. With chronic pain and discomfort, I help people change their relationship to the symptoms, which leads to drastic reduction and often elimination of symptoms.

You don't have to suffer from a severe psychological disorder to benefit from help. Sometimes, functional depression, anxiety, or stress can have a noticeable effect as well. You still function but life could definitely improve. It's just a little grayer, a little louder, little harder to handle. The noise in your brain may be a low chatter but it definitely takes up space. It depletes your energy and makes it just a little harder to manage. You're moody, you're tired, and you don't know how to fix it. When you spend so much time and energy managing your mental health you spend less time living. Let's change that.

As an EMDR therapist, I have experienced successful outcomes for those who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress, obsessive thinking, and many other emotional conditions. In the past, with more traditional therapy, these conditions were time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring lasting relief for most types of emotional distress. Traumatic experiences can have an unsettling effect on our mental and emotional health for years to come.
